Fake doctor freed
The public persecutor yesterday released a student who was arrested for impersonating as a doctor at Amiri Hospital without any bail.

Safety conditions
Chairman of the Municipal Council’s technical committee Fahd Al-Sane said that the committee postponed discussing safety conditions in industrial area buildings until the industrial authority files an official request to do so.

Sane said the committee also deferred discussing a proposal made by member Hassan Kamal on allocating a price of land to build an integrated medical city. He added that the committee also rejected a request made by a fuel marketing company to amend the council’s decision on developing its fuel stations, in addition to discussing a number of other topics on the meeting’s agenda.
